Designed for and with Jesse van Ruller in 2005. The Jesse van Ruller combines the heritage from the vintage Levin 300 series archtop combined with design features as can be seen on most of my models. The hand carved and tuned  solid spruce top and maple back together with the Dynasonic pickup gives this guitar the warm rich  voice Jesse is famous for. A comfortable  16,5 inch makes this guitar the ultimate working horse for the  intensive player.
